Trinity Leeds’ street food concept, Trinity Kitchen, has celebrated a successful first year trading with a new opening. Located in the heart of Leeds city centre, the shopping centre has welcomed Indian street food vendor, Rola Wala, to open its first permanent restaurant site following success as a pop-up in the centre. The 452 sq ft unit joins a host of permanent outlets in Trinity Kitchen including Pho, Tortilla and Chicago Rib Shack, all of which were new to the Leeds market.
The shopping centre’s wider food and beverage offer also continues to evolve in line with consumer demands. Meat Liquor opened a 5,498 sq ft unit last month - its second outside London - while Brazilian Barbecue Restaurant, Cabana, will open a 4,769 sq ft unit next month.
Trinity Kitchen has welcomed 1.3 million visitors in its first year (an average of 25,000 each week) and hosted 55 different street food operators. The 20,000 sq ft concept showcases a continually evolving offer of the UK’s best street food concepts, with five food vans changing regularly throughout the year, together with seven permanent food tenants.
Emma Lawson, portfolio manager at Land Securities, said: “It has been a tremendously successful first year for Trinity Kitchen and the food and beverage offer at Trinity Leeds as a whole since the centre opened in 2013. The opening of Rola Wala demonstrates one of our key objectives for Trinity Kitchen; to create a dining destination in which brands can thrive and subsequently grow. As we continue to bring exciting new brands to the Leeds market, we are thrilled that Rola Wala has benefited from the unique opportunities presented in Trinity Kitchen and look forward to its continued success as a permanent tenant.”
